When you have selected a chart type that shows data points (most do), hover over a data point and you will see the value(s) and category.

Double-click on the chart and then I think it happens.

That only brings up the name of the line in my line graph. It says: Data series 'VALUE' in my case. I would like to get the value of the point where the mouse is. ie from the y axis.
